I wonder how many US viewers will get that.

And now the headlines you may have missed...

Empty rooms of the National Gallery of London during World War II: all the paintings were hidden from the Nazis.
As I understand it, all the Art was returned.

Here's my take on that: They are making a movie and needed a crosswalk where there was none, but the city wouldn't let them paint the street.

Evil man from Green Mile in movie Moon. I liked it.

But they just woke up a clone who was in hibernation for....ever, and the motherfucker had dirty feet.
Do those movie people get together and just think of ways to get to me?

Question: What was whispered in ref's ear that causes that reaction?

Well, take a look for yourself.

You probably missed the gun he had strapped on his hip.


The Greek Super League has been indefinitely suspended after PAOK Salonika's president invaded the pitch with a gun during a match on Sunday. Ivan Savvidis, who had a gun in a hip holster, tried to confront the referee while accompanied by his security team, after his side had a late goal ruled out for offside against AEK Athens, in the gif you see someone approach the referees and warn them Savvidis is armed. AEK's players left the pitch concerned for their safety and did not return. The match was officially abandoned two hours later and local police are seeking Savvidis to arrest him. Deputy sports minister Giorgos Vasiliadis announced the abandonment of all top-flight matches on Monday after a meeting with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

RH: The only thing stopping a bad soccer team owner with a gun is a good soccer team owner with a gun.


But wait there's more!
